Advantages: Does suck up dirt well and looks grea plus no cordst.
Disadvantages: Really hard to empty and screw comes out making it fall apart.
I was instantly drawn to the slimline, modern design of this vacuum cleaner and also by the pre-existing, complementary reviews it had accrued. I found it very quick and easy to assemble, even as someone with no prior experience of assembling appliances. It's just a case of slotting a few sections together and it only has one screw.
The fact it's cordless means, of course, you don't have to worry about its range. It has different settings for hard and carpeted floors and its powerful but relatively quiet suction lifts everything with ease, from bits of rice on the wooden kitchen floor to confetti on a carpeted floor in another room. As as asthma sufferer, I also found this model to be kinder to my lungs than many other vacuum cleaners have tended to be in the past.
Comes highly recommended.
I originally posted this review on Amazon under the same username but since writing it rather hastily after receiving the vacuum cleaner, I have some updates to add which will also explain why I am giving it a different star rating to the one I originally assigned back in January.
The single screw which I had to use, despite having put it in as tightly as I possibly could, keeps coming out and is a real nuisance as when I flatten the cleaner to hoover under the bed and desk, it falls apart.
I also have had no end of trouble trying to empty the dust compartment, to the point where I've had to literally tap and shake it for over an hour at a time over the bin to release the dust, as well as inserting implements such as pencils to further assist easing out the trapped clumps inside. With this in mind, I am now not as thrilled with the device as I was and wouldn't particularly recommend it based on my experience of having used it for 7 months now. You can get better models cheaper.
Summary: Sucks (literally and a bit figuratively too).
